Nominate your club’s 2022 Canteen Hero and win a Safer Canteens Grant

ESV in conjunction with AFL Victoria has opened applications for footy clubs to celebrate their unsung Canteen Heroes – the canteen volunteers.

Behind every hot pie and cold drink is a Canteen Hero, and we want to celebrate them with you by awarding a new Energy Safe Canteen Hero in 2022!

In addition to being crowned the 2022 Canteen Hero, ESV will award a $1000 Safer Canteens grant to the winning volunteer’s football club canteen to purchase new gas or electrical appliances and replace old, faulty or inefficient ones.

To nominate your Canteen Hero. Click HERE and fill in our online form – tell us about the great work your Canteen Hero does for your footy club

Not all hero’s wear capes. Our heroes wear aprons.

Applications are open between 2 August and 1 September 2022 with a winner to be announced in later in September.
